    Don't get the Descent. Especially if you're going to be spending a fair amount of time on the road, the rear suspension is the last thing you want. Go into Framework and talk to them. Anything...

    It probably won't. I'm pretty sure 9spd and 10spd Sram derailleurs have different pull-ratio requirements because of different anchoring points.

    Sorry.

    It could be a dozen different things, from a warped rotor to play in the fork stanchions. Instead of fiddling with the headset or doing something silly like putting lube on the rotor, bring it to a...

    Don't go to Sportchek.

    If you're getting a bike for riding on pavement and gravel, DON'T get a full suspension. In fact, it may be more reasonable and cost effective to update the bike you...

    I was really hoping this was a Maelstrom-era holdover thread that had been resuscitated over and over like the "V-brake versus canti" debate.

    To be constructive: Is there any way you could...

    Is it possible the wheel you're using now is a loaner wheel while they wait for a warrantied wheel from Trek? You should go back to the shop and talk to them. I'm sure they have better explanations...

    The "brifter" (I hate that word) levers aren't long-pull. They're long levers activating short-pull brakes. The interrupters are shorter levers with the same leverage, so there's less physical travel...

    The tire doesn't rub on the front derailleur when you move it to the granny ring? Keep an eye on it. If your wheel develops any wobble or picks up a lot of mud, you may hear the whirring sound of...

    If you're committed to those levers, you'll need either cantilevers or mini-V's. A regular V-brake won't work well.

    Are you using road brake levers or mountain (v-brake) levers?

    Edit: First, I come back and then this thread. It's like 2006 never left.

    You're bending axles because you're running a freewheel instead of a freehub on the rear. If the only problem you had with the bike was bending axles, buy a new rear wheel and cassette; you'll be...

    Is your Komodo internal or external? Why not replace the bottom cup with a 44mm 1.5" and run a tapered fork? You can probably also find lowers cheap if you find an otherwise perfect QR15 fork.

    It might not be broken. Bring it back to where you bought it and get them to reinstall it, with gusto. If the taper has been mangled, the store that assembled it should give you a new one.
